Albums That Changed My Life: Vic Fuentes (Pierce The Veil)

This week's serving of "Albums That Changed My Life" contributor is Pierce The Veil frontman Vic Fuentes!

The band are currently out on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour, in support of their new album "Collide With The Sky". The remainder of the dates can be found here.




Third Eye Blind - S/T

This is the one album that I still come back to for inspiration every time we make a record. Stephen Jenkins is my favorite lyricist because his songs are always very poetic, but also still very raw as if he is just speaking to the listener as a friend.









Queen - A Night At The Opera

I remember when I was first learning how to harmonize my vocal and guitar melodies, our producer in San Diego told me that I should check out this Queen record and it changed the way I wrote songs forever. I have this obsession with songs that have tons of layers and interesting sounds scattered throughout them. Every time you listen to a song, you hear something that you never knew was there.







Sublime - 40oz To Freedom

Bradley Nowell is my favorite vocalist of all time. He sings with more emotion and honesty than anyone I've ever heard. My dad has always told my brother Mike and I that we need to have heart and soul in our music, and that's exactly what we try to do. Bradley Nowell will always be an inspiration to me as a vocalist trying to bring out every ounce of emotion in our songs.








Lagwagon - Let's Talk About Feelings

My brother and I grew up playing fast, technical punk rock early on while we were still in high school. This record is back to front one of my favorites because it taught me how to play that style, which we still incorporate in our music today.
